Loganair signs up with Wider√łe

A further boost to its international connectivity was hailed by Loganair on Friday after the Scottish carrier signed a new interline agreement with the Norwegian regional airline Widerøe.

The partnership means passengers can fly from Newcastle Airport direct to Stavanger with a seamless one-stop onward connection to both Oslo Sandefjord-Torp Airport and Kristiansand.

The new link is important for business travellers in the energy and marine industries among others which have links in Newcastle and Norway, as well as leisure travellers looking to explore more of Scandinavia.

Previously, passengers would have had to make two separate bookings, and had no protection in case of delay, whereas now customers may book on a single booking with checked-through luggage and protection in case of delay or disruption.

Loganair commercial director Kay Ryan said: “This new partnership will be of special interest to those working in the marine and energy sectors with business links in Norway and anyone keen to explore more of Scandinavia.”

The agreement is the latest addition to Loganair’s “Better Connected” programme, which aims to ensure its route network is “better connected” with strategic worldwide destinations of importance.

The airline already has agreements with British Airways, KLM, Qatar, Emirates, Thomas Cook, Turkish Airlines and Air France.
